I find Up helly aa embarrassing, If there ever were camp vikings, then i'd imagen most of the jarl squads over the last umpteen years would do a fairly good job of replicating what they look like, what with there pristine colourful furry boots, shiny polished hats and way over the top, camped up, dame Edna style costumes. The Vikings must be turning in there graves. It's not so bad them prancing about up here, but when they prance about on the mainland, Edinburgh etc it's acutely embarrassing.


Are we a laughing stock? well, the emperor is naked.
